Trumpet in chamber music - quartets (in alphabetical order)

AVE VERUM CORPUS for brass quartet (2-1-1) by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, transcribed by Howard J. Buss. This sensitive rendition of one of Mozart’s most sublime works makes an outstanding feature number for a recital as well as a wonderful musical offering in church.  (3’30”) Grade II-III.

Canzona coverCANZONA by Florentio Maschera (1540-1584) for brass quartet (2-1-1 or 2-0-2) part 3 of the music can be played by either a trombone or a French horn, transcribed by Howard J. Buss.

DRY BONES coverDRY BONES, the well-known African American spiritual (the foot bone's connected to the leg bone, the leg bone's connected to the...), arranged for brass quartet (2-1-1 or 2-0-2) by Howard Buss. Part 3 of the music can be played by either a trombone or a French horn (both parts are included). Multiple players may be used on each part to expand the ensemble. This arrangement is hugely influenced by jazz. There is an extended 2-part introduction which begins hymn-like, and then breaks out in a jubilant jazzy section. This is followed by a more traditional rendering of the spiritual; however, as the music reaches its climax, the jazz "licks" from the introduction are brought back as counterpoint against the main melody of the spiritual. The result is exhilarating, and for a bit of humor, just as the work ends, there is a jazzy "tongue-in-cheek" plagal cadence. Grade IV.

EINE KLEINE SNAILMUSIK coverEINE KLEINE SNAILMUSIK for high voice (soprano or tenor), trumpet, cello, and piano by Roger C. Vogel is a humorous setting of May Sarton’s poem of the same name. Theatrical gestures are used in this lighthearted and playful work. In the preface to the score thecomposer writes, "The humor in this work will be greatly enhanced by setting a lighthearted mood before beginning the work and by appropriate gestures throughout." The vocal range is from d below the treble staff to Ab above the staff.  (8’) Grade V.

FUGA VII coverFUGA VII
from the Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 2, BWV 876, by Johann Sebastian Bach for brass quartet, [two B-flat trumpets, French horn (an optional trombone part is included as a substitute for the horn on part 3), and trombone] transcribed by Howard J. Buss. Rather than eliciting a strong emotional response from listeners, this elegant music is designed to showcase compositional craftmanship and stilulate the intellect. This outstanding transcription makes a wonderful addition to a concert and is especially appropriate for use in church. (3’) Grade III. Sound Sample: Excerpt.mp3;  Score_Sample.pdf
FUGA VII for brass quartet, B1001 $7.95 

RICERCARE ON C coverRICERCARE ON C by Andrea Gabrieli (1510-1586) transcribed by Howard J. Buss for brass quartet (2-1-1 or 2-0-2) part 3 of the music can be played by either a trombone or a French horn. This late Renaissance work is written in a stirring imitative style and includes several metric modulations, typical of much of the dance music of the time. It makes an outstanding feature number for a recital as well as a lively musical offering in church. (2’30”) Grade III.
